An applicant that meets all requirements will receive a probationary license to judge for a period of three (3) years. At the end of that time the probationary judge will be reviewed by the AWMA director of judges who will make a recommendation to the AWMA executive board for permanent judges license.

Licensed judges from AWDF and FCI recognized programs may be granted a AWMA judges license with a majority vote approval of the AWMA Executive Board, after having being listed for a period of forty-five (45) days on the AWMA web site and doing an optional walkthrough with the AWMA DOJ or their designee.
